Electrical actuators are a mostly unseen component that can make your work come to life. They create dynamic appeal through motion, and allow you to hide parts of your work that aren't in use. You can use an electric linear actuator to hide a television inside a cabinet, or to create a moving component in animatronics. Electric valve actuators are at the heart of car hydraulics, and electric rotary actuators are a staple in industrial manufacturing and assembly lines.
When looking for an electric actuator, you may want to consider that there are electric actuator distributors and electric actuator manufacturers that specialize in different areas of automation. Electric actuators can be anything from small electric linear actuators that open a door to large scale components used to manufacture cars. Keep in mind these three things when you're purchasing electric actuators:
1. For a small, or highly individualized application, buy directly from an electric actuator manufacturer.
2. Shop electric actuator supplier sites for bulk deals, but shop locally when you can to establish a relationship with your electric actuator distributor.
3. Find specialty actuators through electric actuator suppliers that specialize in products for specific applications or industries.
Get electric linear actuators directly from manufacturersElectric linear actuators serve one simple function -- to move something in a straight line along a track. However, within that function there are several variables you need to consider, including the force the actuator will need to exert, the speed with which you need parts to move, and the distance you need your electric actuators to move objects. The success of your work may depend entirely on your actuators. Check with electric actuator manufacturers for a part that fits your product.
Find an electric actuator supplier near youFor larger businesses that routinely install electric actuators, you may want to consider building a relationship with local electric actuator distributors. This advantage works in your favor when you're purchasing bulk shipments.
Order specialty actuators from electric rotary actuator and electric valve actuators suppliersFind suppliers of electric actuators for rotary, valve and other specialized applications, according to your business needs.
- Make sure you have an adequate power source, as well as compatible parts for your electric actuators.
